slow start.

So I just realized that I am about to be as good at blogging as I am returning phone calls.  So let's put a stop to that right now.  I have been slow on the start up of this, buuuut good news!  I am awaiting a new computer so I won't have to use Graham's or sneak at work.  (Just kidding, Mom!  I don't sneak at work).  It comes next week, and I am quite excited.  I will finally have something to upload pictures to!

Still settling into the apartment (pictures to come, see above).  My next task on the to-do list is curtains.  We have dismantled out 70lbs+ closet sliding doors because 1. they weigh 70lbs+ and 2. they're alignment prohibited Graham and I from accessing our sides simultaneously, which created really unpleasant weekday mornings.  I know, I know - I don't know why we had to get in there at the same time.  We just did.

But that won't happen this weekend because this weekend is Brie's Bachelorette Party!  We are driving up to Santa Barbara on Friday and renting a huge house (there are 16 of us, lord help us) and taking a party bus wine tasting in Santa Ynez on Saturday.  The boys are having their Bachelor party this weekend as well.  Graham's the best man so he has been planning fervishly for it.  I'm looking forward to a mini vaca.  I am not looking forward to Monday.

Also I joined a new gym!  Goodbye to my pricey snobby yoga studio.  Hello Gold's Gym with lots of classes (including yoga), a swimming pool, and cinema cardio room with new releases, and a steal of a membership fee.  Gots to get into bikini shape for the upcoming trip to Costa Rica!  We have been nesting since the wedding.  Literally.  hehe.  (That joke will never get old, sorry Aftan).

Love to everyone.  I will make up my lack of pictures I promise!

Yes, please.

One puppy and one nap and that should do it for me.  Can't you just smell his little puppy breath?  Someday!  Hopefully someday sooner than later...

Yesterday, I was given one of the most amazing birthday/5mo anniversary gifts of all time.  A huge, love-filled, thank you to my best good and my best good brother-in-law!

Celebratory Lunch!

The past two weeks have been quite hectic.  A move to a different apartment, sandwiched between two very busy work weeks has made me quite frazzled and sleep deprived.  Today, not only did we submit a competition proposal (sure to win) but the rest of the upstairs office team submitted their 100% package as well.  Naturally, we went to lunch.  More accurately, we went to wine, with some lunch, at Cucina Urbana.  I ordered baked mussels with a delicious rich cream-based broth that had onion and ham bits in it.  Not only was the dish to die, but dipping the warm crusty bread in the left over broth was heaven.
